Colloquium: Artist Collectives in the 21st Century
Friday, March 3, 2017 6-8pm
There appears to be a recent resurgence in artists who are collectivizing as a means of political agency against unfavorable power and payment structures in the 21st century. Join Advocates for Cultural Engagement (ACE) and representatives of several high-profile, New York-based artist collectives as they discuss the benefits and/or setbacks of collective agency in the art world. How can this agency be best utilized? How are these collectives making real world impact in the for-profit and nonprofit art worlds we are about to enter? Organized by Laura Cunniff, VAA ’17. Panelists TBA.
